The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia presents Ridge by “creative typhoon” (The Georgia Straight), slam poet, and musician Brendan McLeod on Thursday March 26, 2020, at 7:30pm in the Telus Studio Theatre. Often called the “battle that made Canada,” Vimy Ridge resulted in over 10,000 Canadian casualties. Through direct storytelling, verbatim theatre, and live music, McLeod takes us back to the historic battle in a visceral work that honours the memory of Canadian soldiers, probes difficult yet necessary questions about how and why we grieve, and takes a searing look at the futility of war and the callousness of political and military leaders.
